A scattered assembly of images documenting a suburban house, the street around it, and children playing around the construction site after the house is torn down. Footage was shot by Brakhage and re-edited by Cornell; mainly interesting to see how the visual sense of space feels different from Cornell's other films such as Nymphlight or Angel.
What a disappointment this was on 16mm - I was really looking forward to experiencing this on a print. The BFI had some tinted version, and I wondered how I ever liked this film. I revisited my DVD black and white version, and realised what a beautiful work this was again. The shadows and light work so wonderfully in B&W, but that print the BFI had was terrible and stunts the beautiful contrast in light.
